US animal shelter shocked after 800 parakeets handed over

The birds, also known as budgerigars (budgies) were delivered in two batches by the son of their owner who had kept them in one room, in what the shelter called "a very unhealthy situation". A first batch of 497 birds - crammed into seven cages - were dropped off on 23 December.
